Event Summary

With (legal) cannabis in California emerging as the new normal, the state is reaping rewards. In 2018, the first year of regulated sales, California took in $345.2M in tax revenue from legal cannabis sales, exhibiting quarter-over-quarter growth. Forecasting out, Governor Newsom’s budget anticipates $513M in revenues for the 2019-2020 fiscal year.

As cannabis coworking developments sprout up across the state, Los Angeles is seeing the retail experience continue to evolve as bleeding-edge brands such as Dosist expand their square footage and the first-ever Cannabis Cafe, Original Cannabis Cafe, opened in West Hollywood, CA.

With these verticals further cementing themselves in the minds of consumers and residents, institutional investors, owners, and landlords alike are seeing positive movement and momentum in the opportunities afforded to them.

Join Bisnow as we explore the continued Cannabis CRE evolution from innovation centers and industrial projects to retail trends and policy updates. With questions, recommendations, or press inquiries please email Bisnow’s Southern California Event Producer Matt Seukunian (matt.seukunian@bisnow.com).

  1. California netted $345.2M in tax revenue from legal cannabis during 2018. What numbers will we see at the end of 2019?
  2. Where are institutional investors looking as California continues to cultivate innovation centers, coworking cannabis spaces, and trends retail offerings?
  3. With the opening of Original Cannabis Cafe – the first-ever “Cannabis Cafe” – in West Hollywood, CA, what can investors, owners, and consumers expect from the ever-evolving retail sector?
  4. As time and new policies normalize the Cannabis sector, how is the relationship between tenants and landlords? As relations likely improve, what is changing with regard to leasing policies and activity?
  5. With the majority of California municipalities still prohibiting marijuana businesses, what steps must be taken to ensure the economic opportunities presented by legalization are fully capitalized on?
